90(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , September/October 2010

($124; 100% cabernet franc; 14% alcohol) Deep red. Reticent but pure aromas of blueberry, raspberry syrup, sweet spices and milk chocolate. Juicy, spicy and intensely flavored but a bit imploded today; perhaps this is entering a shut-down phase. The fresh red and dark berry flavors come across as a little simple, but this young wine's broad, fine tannins suggest that it will show better with three or four years of cellaring. Still, I doubt this will ever turn out to be one of my favorite Paleos.
